Resilliency

Say what you want about these Celtics.  Say they’ve been beat up.  Say they’ve been thrown out.  But they’re not down.  They’ve been shown up, but they’ve grown up.  And they’re not down.  The Celtics beat the Bobcats in double-overtime last night.  The Celtics beat the Bobcats in double-overtime last night the hard way.  They overcame deficits within the final thirty seconds of the fourth quarter.  They overcame deficits within the final thirty seconds of the first overtime.  They overcame deficits within the final thirty seconds of the second overtime.   How about that? 

How about this?  It was the first time in five years that an NBA team won a game in which it trailed with less than a half-minute remaining in regulation time and each of the first two OT periods.  The first time since Memphis did that in a double-overtime victory at Atlanta back in ’04.  So, say what you want you want about this Celtics team.  I’ll say they know how to win.

Roll Celtics, roll!
